'It's said it's necessary to kill Ahmadis'

It's the 40th anniversary of the Ahmadi people being declared non-Muslims in Pakistan. The Ahmadi movement identifies itself as Muslim and follows the teachings of the Koran, but it is regarded by orthodox Muslims as heretical - because of its interpretation of certain Koranic writings.

Community elder Chaudhry Hamidullah feels that violence against Ahmadis - or Qadianis - has reached a critical point. He says even a sick child in hospital can't feel safe.
